Mustard beef stew

Hands up who doesn’t love Saturday morning lay ins, a lunch date with friends and a warm beef stew to come home to, followed up by the best bread and butter pudding you have ever laid eyes on, not to mention tasted? Well that is what is store for Jo girl and I today, we’ve had the lay in, the bread and butter pudding has just come out of the oven, so the house smells amazing right now, and the beef stew is cooked and will just require reheating on our return this evening, loving every minute of the day thus far! We are off to Burswood’s Victoria Station Steakhouse for lunch, a work social club event, haven’t eaten there before but have heard good reports so we are looking forward to it and at a cost of $10.00 per head for a three course meal, I don’t think there will be too many complaints from this quarter! With a choice of three entrees, then three cuts of meat, a chicken, fish and pasta options for main course and two deserts to choose from, which includes a Sticky Date Pudding with walnut ice cream and toffee sauce, it sounds like great value to me, even if you were to pay the full price @ $29.90, mmm can’t wait to try that sticky date!

Well I never got to try that Sticky Date pudding as the menu had changed from the one stated on the web, the menu now boasts a choice of 5 entrees, 5 mains (still including 3 steak cuts) and 1 desert which is done as a daily special, yesterday the special was Pavolva which was quite good.  For the entree I chose Prawn Skewers which came with a salad and a seafood thousand island sauce which was very good and for the main I chose Scotch Fillet with pepper sauce, this was served with baby potatoes, brocoli and carrot.  The food was very good as was the service, the wine list is fairly extensive and expensive, but there are some options around the 35-40 mark which were not too bad, we chose a Goundrey G Shiraz Viognier which went beautifully with the steak, all in all a good day out.
